Mama Ruisa, small earthly paradise in Rio

Suite J Cocteau

Santa Teresa, it's the hype and bobo district in Rio, where the glam intelligentsia hangs out, artistes and other fashion figureheads of the carioca city.

Mama Ruisa is  « dream little hotel », halfway between a deluxe  guest-house and a boutique hotel as we like them, for a home-sweet-home and tropicale experience…

Imagine a pretty house whose host in no other than a very inspired Parisian, Jean Michel Ruis… step into a marvelous living room and feel right at home,  chic retro style rooms, all unique, where you imagine drawing collections of Parisian icons such from Josephine Baker to Colette.

The must ? A pool to relax in green mode between your wild nights in  Ipenema and your outings to Leblon… Cherry on the cake : sipping fresh passion fruit caipirinhas au fruit under the shade or palm trees and watching birds of paradise flutter about…
